Fashion Notes: Jacket: MCM, Dress: American Apparel, Handbag: Chanel, Shoes: Elizabeth and James, Glasses: Giorgio Armani Aviators, Cuff: Turchin Jewelry
I’m loving my MCM Jacket – it’s so 1980’s, you have to love it. I am usually not inclined to wear something swimming in logos, but this jacket has hints of humor – I am probably the only one who is in on the joke – – but it’s not cheesy, I swear!
The drop-off style of Miami moms, is really like no other. Most likely, if you visit Miami, you will feel underdressed and frumpy – not because you are at all, but merely because Miami has a population of women who dress up – even to drop their kids off at school. You will see stilettos at 7:00 am and curve hugging fabrics – – picture Sofia Vergara waiting at the school entrance to drop off her son. Yup. I’m serious.
In some ways I really miss that Miami glamour – we have the Latin population to thank for that, but It’s also nice to be able to roll out of bed sometimes, and still feel halfway decent….ummm thank you Northern California.
Here’s a shot of me in my Miami look, if I were to go all out at Drop-Off. I have another photo in the Mara Style Section of me wearing the identical look, only with a hippie fringe bag, and rock-n-roll boots – it’s pretty unbelievable how those two accessories, changed my entire look…Personally, I feel much more comfortable wearing ankle boots with a dress this short and tight. Ankle boots really help balance a look that screams “too much”.
